WWE Hall of Famer Scott Hall recently spoke with Wrestling INC.’s WINCLY podcast. During the conversation, Hall brought up the idea that AEW is less competing with WWE, and more competing with WWE’s developmental brand, NXT.

“I think AEW is basically competing with NXT. NXT is booming and global and now that TV wants wrestling, every network is a copycat network,” said Hall. “People want more wrestling on TV so it won’t be long until NXT has a show, I predict. And you heard it here first.”
This corroborates reports that WWE had a plan to use main roster talent on NXT, should the brand be moved into a head-to-head slot with AEW’s upcoming TNT program.

Hall has been working with the future of NXT, coaching “big guys” in the WWE Performance Center.
“It was about my third or fourth time down there and I love it. I asked Triple H to let me work with the big guys; they have some whoppers down there. It’s just a different style to teach a big guy how to work vs. a high-flyer,” said Hall.
“I had so much fun down there and got so excited watching a kid I helped train (Jordan Omogbehin) to debut that I couldn’t sleep that night.”
